Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Topic : Songs and Books
This week we have another relatively open-ended topic. I was originally going to look at songs inspired by books; any books. But then as I went along in my research I realized not only did half of my entries draw inspiration from Middle Earth, but there are all from about the same time period. So here you go folks- ten songs inspired by The Lord of the Rings. The 70’s really, really liked Hobbits.
- Ramble On – Led Zeppelin
- The Battle of Evermore – Led Zeppelin
- Stairway to Heaven – Led Zeppelin
- Misty Mountain Hop – Led Zeppelin
- Stagnation – Genesis
- The Wizard – Black Sabbath
- Rivendell – Rush
- The Necromancer – Rush
- The Gnome – Pink Floyd
- The Lords of the Ring – Styx
And this isn’t even the entirety of inspired songs- there are dozens, if not hundreds more floating around out there! Do you have a Tolkienesque Rock Jam that tops your list? Let me know!
